from israel's election. prime minister benjamin net tanya tanya netanyahu apparently came out on top but may make it tougher for him to form a right-wing coalition government. sara sidner is standing by. sara, this was apparently a lot closer than so many expected. what happened? what's going on? >> reporter: wolf, what's interesting here is there was expectation that a partnership with netanyahu would get far more seats than they actually got. so what it has said is that they are going to have to form a coalition -- and i'm quoting netanyahu here -- has to be wider. when you say wider, that means that they are likely going to reach out to the center or to the left. the center-left. what has happened in the past is all of the polls were saying that this party was going to win and skew right but some of the far right parties would take over and that they would be in charge of the policies which would certainly rub the international community perhaps the wrong way. now we're seeing a prime minister who says i see that the voters want changes. i want to lead those changes and i'm go

ultimately egypt has upheld the treaty with israel and the hope is that it will continue to uphold it and we made that point as well. the president hopes. >> you hear these comments from the president of egypt and wonder why is the u.s. going ahead with the delivery of more f-16 jet fighters to egypt. do you support the delivery of that sophisticated war planes to egypt right now? >> i do, but the question is very, very pertinent and a good one. the reason for the sales is that they are tied directly to the camp david peace accords. they are executed through the sales. remember that these f 16s are not the most advanced. they would be decimated by the air force if there were a conflict. the military is dependent on the united states for training and pilots and for support of those planes. they are far from the use of the equipment. equally important is the military relationship demonstrated in the role played in helping to gain a ceasefire when the hamas and israel were in conflict. there is a relationship and egypt committed itself and continues officially to the peace accord which is vi
